Don’t know about you, but I have a big part of the tape in social networks the last few days consists of photographs of people who are 50, 60 or even 90 years. And not because I’ve decided to expand the circle of communication: blame application with a straightforward name FaceApp, which literally took over the Internet around the world. The last time it happened, perhaps, with the advent of Prisma and MSQRD. What is so subdued trends now?
By the way, here’s how the app MSQRD became popular. Then it all Facebook bought.
In General, applications that “sostarivayut” people (or do later), add makeup, etc., in the App Store quite a lot. But almost no one does it as cool as FaceApp: through the use of artificial intelligence and deep learning neural networks application makes the new images as similar to the real. The neural network analyzes patterns in the expressions of the people, and then can create a new image where the subject looks different, such as smiling or aged.
Here’s how FaceApp “rejuvenated” Apple CEO Tim cook to several decades:
Note — the application not only removed wrinkles and changed facial expressions, and even added a different type and color of hair
And it is — old head of Amazon Jeff Bezos:
And even jony Ive it able to force a smile, though the designer and not in awe of the fact that he was leaving Apple:

Actually FaceApp — not a new app, it was released in January 2017. A new round of popularity brought him the filter that makes people older or younger in the photo. As the Analytics website App Annie, the popularity FaceApp began to grow again from Africa (why, I wonder?), and then the wave conquered the middle East, Europe and Russia. My role is also played by support from famous personalities and stars who have been actively promoting the app on social networks. Now storming the app tops App Store in Russia, Bahrain, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other countries. By the way, for the development FaceApp are the Russian guys — it was created by a native of “Yandex” Yaroslav Goncharov.
To try the application for free for example, you can add a photo of a smile or to use the effect of “rejuvenation”. For additional filters, like changing hairstyles and adding make-up will need to pay 249 rubles per month or 1490 rubles per year (also has a perpetual option for 2990 rubles). Well, plus, the “feeding” neural networks and their photos, you are helping him to learn and process the photos even better.
